I just got word that my grant request for $500 was approved by the Rotary Club of Sebastopol! Harmonic Systems will work in conjunction with Chimera Arts to renovate a couple of old "sign trailers" into portable Art Galleries! We plan to have the work done by Parking Day (Sept. 18th, 2015), and to celebrate by displaying the "parklet galleries" in various parking spots around town. They will be used by local schools and other community groups and artists for pop-up galleries around town. I know the picture to the left looks pretty junky, but after we are done, it will be a wonderful community resource! More pictures as work progresses.

I just signed a contract with the City of Sebastopol to build a custom circular bench in honor of the Occupy Sebastopol movement. The idea is to have a truly circular bench in the downtown plaza to foster community discussions, whether organized or spontaneous. Peter Santulli of Circle Tree Studio will be doing the building and bending! of the wood. No one has ever tried to take standard cast-iron park bench legs (from the 1939 World's Fair) and fit curved pieces of wood on to them. We will have a community bending and gluing party sometime in June! See the Occupy Bench Facebook Page

So excited to have just signed a lease on a new office for Harmonic Systems, Inc. The office will be upstairs in the old Ford Building, at 6791 Sebastopol Ave. When finished, it will be about 650 sq. ft., with room for projects big and small. And it is right above the new 3,000 sq. ft. Maker Space being created by Chimera Arts! A grand opening party will be held sometime in July, most likely!
